For Sale: 1953 Cadillac Eldorado in Costa Mesa, California

Vehicle Description

Finished in iconic red over two-tone red and white leather, this 1953 Cadillac Eldorado convertible represents the pinnacle of collectability. As the top-of-the-line offering when originally sold, Cadillac produced just 532 of these specialty convertibles for 1953. Being a post-war showcase of GM's design leadership and American prosperity, this special-bodied convertible was the production version of the 1952 El Dorado "Golden Anniversary" concept car. Borrowing the bumper bullets from the 1951 GM Le Sabre show car, the Eldorado also contains a multitude of luxury features and introduced the wraparound windshield. Acquired by its current owner from the Bob McDorman collection (owner of "the trio") this Cadillac has been museum-kept since restoration, and meticulously maintained to collector-quality standards.
